Opera Mail: Shortcut for Inbox

  • How do I make a shortcut for my inbox in Opera Mail? I want to have a button or tab or something that I can click on to go straight to my inbox. I don't want to have to scroll through all my folders just to get there.

  • In Opera 12 or earlier:

    Assign desired shortcut to: Read mail, 2

    That is the Received folder, where all read and unread mail is found. This is my entire Mail Access Points Menu from Opera 11.64.

    [Mail Access Points Menu]
    Item, "Unread" = Read mail, 1,,,"Mark as read"
    Item, "Received" = Read mail, 2,,,"View from"
    Item, "Outbox" = Read mail, 3,,,"Send Mail"
    Item, "Drafts" = Read mail, 4,,,"Compose Mail"
    Item, "Sent" = Read mail, 5,,,"View to"
    ---Trash---
    Item, "Spam" = Read mail, 8,,,"Mark as spam"
    Item, "Trash" = Read mail, 6,,,"Show Trash"
    ---Feeds---
    Item, "Mailing Lists" = Read mail, 9,,,"Show Mailing Lists"
    Item, "Newsfeeds" = Read mail, 11,,,"Show Newsfeeds"

    Huh? What? What are you talking about? What do I do to make a shortcut within Opera Mail? Are you telling me to edit some file by hand or something? I have no idea what you're talking about.

  • Are you using Opera 12 or earlier or are you using the standalone email client? The instructions are for assigning shortcuts in Opera 12 or earlier.

    For the foreseeable future, Opera 12 or earlier is the best option if you want to customise anything.

  • If you are using the standalone mail client, you can assign a keyboard shortcut as Pesala said (if the forum hadn't run all his code together).

    Read mail, 1

    Go to Preferences > Advanced > Shortcuts, click on Edit, select a context that you want the shortcut to work in (usually [Application]), click on New, enter a key to use for the shortcut (maybe U?), press Tab and in the right column type the command above, then click the Okay buttons in both dialogs.

    If you want a button, you will have to edit a file.
